About the Magazine
SILICON SEMICONDUCTOR MAGAZINE provides unique insights into the global design and manufacturing supply chain. As a fundamental enabling technology, semiconductors play essential roles in every aspect of modern electronics including the Internet of Things (IoT) and its manufacturing counterpart, the industrial IoT. Whether transforming a device or system by connecting it to the internet, or by adding sensors with advanced capabilities, the semiconductor market continues to expand at an accelerated pace.
Although experts debate the long-term potential of IoT devices to reshape semiconductor manufacturing, most agree that delivering on its market-changing potential will depend upon many factors aligning to affect the IoT. To handle billions or trillions of data-transmitting devices, IoT networks need to shift toward unlicensed spectrum. This in turn will necessitate more secure communications protocols and device-level security along with greater integration, lower maintenance, and ultra-low power requirements. Tomorrow’s growth hinges on new technologies, 2022 is certain to bring excitement as the world continues to grow its appetite for products made possible by next-generation semiconductors. What opportunities will we see? Could growth reverse course? Will AI and machine learning drive (or deflate) IoT expectations? Will new European or North American centres emerge as power players? Silicon Semiconductor magazine delivers keen insight into new and evolving technologies. Whether the topic is growth, reversals, or product and process innovation, look to Silicon Semiconductor for greater appreciation of ways that markets and technology interact to shape tomorrow’s futures, and fortunes.
